Character Creation (Part-Time Course)

Character Creation is a 12 week classroom introduction where you’ll design, model, texture, rig and animate your own character.
Everything you need to bring your character ideas to life!
You’ll explore different character design techniques,create 3D models using Maya, and then paint and texture your character to give it a distinct look. Finally, you’ll breathe life into your creation through rigging and animation.
